We discuss how to make a great bicycle film, even if you're not an experienced filmmaker.

The answer is yes, if a handful of long-serving London women bike messengers are to be believed.

This week's show was about a long ride from Fargo to New Orleans following the Mississippi River. Kieron Yates made this journey over the summer on a fixed wheel bike with just a saddlebag for all his worldly possessions, which included a mic and recorder. Safely back home, he joins me in in conversation and we play music and interviews from along the way. The journey took in Mormons, naked yoga, Klan-survivors, sweat and heat, roadkill and plenty of down home blues.
